Is ministry robbing the elderly?

18 May 2012, 14:28

Nairobi - Red flags have been raised around the country over misappropriation of funds after it emerged that only a fraction of the elderly have been receiving money from the Cash Transfer Fund for the Elderly  which the government distributes.

According to Capital News, elderly people aged 65 years and above who are not pensionable and have no other financial support are entitled to a monthly stipend of KES 2,000 from the government under the fund but most of them have not been receiving the money.

The Programme is run by the Ministry of Gender, Children and Social Development and is meant to empower the elderly people to a tune of up to KES 3 billion annually.
